Will Europe roll over? 

" 'Bin Laden' tape vows revenge" - what about Bin Laden himself? Still no video recording since late 2001. What does this publicity junkie have to hide?

The suspected Bin Laden voiceover might be offering a stick in revenge for the assassination of Hamas "spiritual leader" Sheik Yassin, but he is also dangling a carrot, "offering a truce with European states if they stop attacking Muslims, but not with the United States."

According to the report, the tape also says that "the March 11 train bombings in Madrid that killed 191 people were payment for Spain's actions in Iraq, Afghanistan and 'Palestine'."

Spaniards might be confused by the reference to their actions in "Palestine", seeing that Spain is the most consistently pro-Arab and anti-Israel country in Western Europe. Oh well, at least now it's official: Spaniards will have to try harder at appeasement.
